The primary objc 
of the current master plan

Among the plans for the 
revitalization ..i University 
Avenue corridor is a new 
dorm. This dorm will be 
located near Cannon Hall. 
Cannon will also receive a 
renovation. A new student life 
center is planned for 
(Thompson i mon is currently 
located. While the Thompson 

Union building Will rein. mi 

standing it will be completely 

renovated lo house state-of- 
the-art student recreational 
facilities. Dr. Williams 

compared the rcnoval 

of Thompson Union lo the 
ation of Gailot Hall ten 
years ago: same building but 
completely new on the 
Guerr> Hall's renovation 
includes up-to-daic facilities 
for music classes and a new 
auditorium Walsh Ellel wfll 
receive modernization Ml 
ol the administrative offices 
currently located on the i"- 1 
floor will be moved lo the 
Bishops Common, and ihe 
budding will be devoted 
entirely to academics 

The new library will be 
located near the bookstore, 
and will completely replace 
DuPont. This library 
"look die fuiurc" 

and help Sewanee stay 
competitive, Dr Williams 
says. The new library will 

classmen, and to concentrate 
underclassmen in dorms 
i to central campus 
The new master plan will 
also help Sewanee become 
more sustainable V tl 
master plan forum, there was 
discussion ol a Sustainable 
Learning Center, which will 
be located at the old daii 
Brakeheld Road I In 
give students an opportunity 
io experience "oil the grid 
Ir. ing and help them develop 

important self-reliance skills 
Ii will be part of a larger 
revitalization of the old 
University Farm 

In addition to the 
Sustainable Learning Center. 
some students hope to see 
a de-emphasis on iraiiie on 
central campus. Michael 
Cls. who attended 
the first master plan forum 
earlier this year says he- 
would like io sec less

Instead of hiring summer

White House, a petition with 
over 600,000 signature i 
warning from twenty-two 
leading climate ch.ur.

denying this pipeline would

contributions to the reggae 
genre changed it permanently 
and he is immortalized by 
his music Bob's lasting 
reputation is the reason foi 
The Wallers' success m the 
twenty-firsl century, and

"Lei's be the generation that finally frees 

•m the tyranny of oil" 

... Generations Irom now we will be able 

10 look back and tell our children this was 

the moment when the rise of the oceans began 

lo slow and our planet began to heal " 

These arc the words ol Barack Obama 
i indiclatc Obama that is-not quite the same 
man who currently occupies 'he \\ hue House. 
In 2008. Obama's ctndidacyprovided a surge 
of energy through the country, giving the U S . 
Iiupc for a government that would prioritize 
|K.-ace. social iiisticc. and environmental 
protection, among ,i number of progressive 
ci the interest of the few who 
ii,. nil. ills control Washington. 

Candidate Obama talked a good talk, but 
unfortunately money talks even louder This 
is especially true on environmental issues, 
where industry can essentially bus the right 
:,. pollute our water and air by donating to 
campaigns Obama received $884,000 from 
(he oil ami gas industry for his presidential 
bid. giving him extra incentive to ealcr to 
industry interests it he wants to be re-elected 

If President Obama had a sincere desire lo 
prolectour plane! . his record on envin inmcnUl 
is'.ues would h( significantly differenl He 
would not have cut ozone regulations earlier 
this month causing an estimated 2.200 heart 
attacks and 23.000 asthma attacks annually 
He would base challenged Congress to 
get serious on climate change, rather than 
allowing them lo further confuse the public 

by repeating industry Calking points abOUl 
climate science He would have used (he BP 
oil spill as an opportunity to sr\ foul and 
begin to move the country away from fb til 
fuels, especially risky extraction methods hkc 
deep-sea drilling Perhaps most significantly, 
he would tike a strong stand against i Ii 
change b) rejecting the Keystone XL 

The Keystone XL is a pipeline proposed 
by the oil giant Transcin.ida that would .pan 

the Midwest from Alberta Canada 
to lev. ik Ii would carry nil di i ivcd Irom 
bitumen tound in the ( anadian i.u Sands, 
an i pcci.ills dirty source of energy [nordei 
Strip-mine for the bitumen, pristine bi 

is hredded and buried. and stieami and 
lakes arc replaced with enormous tonic sludge 
impoundments. Extracting and refinln 
'-and'- oil is sen. energy-intensive mC mine I 
i amount of tar sands oil produce! around 
twice the amount of carbon emission] IS thai 
produced by the same amount of conventional 
crude oil. 

Alter the oil is initially refined, it is tent on 
a dangerous joumey through the heartland \ 

■.mill. ii pipeline built recently h\ .ni.i.l.i 
spilled twelve times m its first month. 
i ndangering the water supply and ccolo 
health of host communities The proposed 
pipeline is especially dangerous because it 
passes ovei the Ogaliala Aquifei (the largest 
I ol drinking and agricultural water in 
lite Midwest land since tar sands oil is hcasici 

than water u is more expensive and difficult 
to clean up 

In the words of climate activist Bill 
McKibben. "Even if all thai oil 

Photo > outti tyoj '" otiii&olh "»» 

makes it safely to Texas, every' drop of 
il that didn't spill into the land or water is 
going to spill into the atmosphere " Despite 
oremenlioned dangers ol extmctinf ind 
transporting uu sand] oil th thre it 

from this project is its contribution in global 


Because the tar sands is one of the 
lamest |hmi|s o| carbon on Earth. NASA 

climate scientist lames Hansen believer that 

extracting every drop ol i.u sands oil i which 

is the goal ol som, ( anadian government 
lis) would be "essentially gimc ovei 
for the climate." While it is possible thai III 
sands extraction could continue without the 
proposed pipeline, the pipeline will make 

taster and more profitable 

The interesting thing about the pipeline is that 
its construction requires approval ol thi 
State Department, meaning President t II 
has the authority to stop the pipeline Irom 
being built. 

This is why I joined 65 others on the tirst 

i a fourteen-day civildis> iction 

that aimed lo convince Obama lo reject the 

pipeline. The action included I 252 concerned 

citizens who sat-in in irom ol the White 

House and were arrested In opp ion to the 

pipeline it was the largest civil di obed 
action since the civil rights movement I 

d included Bill McKibben, lame. 
Hansen, adviser lo the Cartel administration 
GusSpcth. as well as celebrities Danny Glovet 

and Margot Kidder In order to counteract 
the large amount of money used in lobby ing 
for the pipeline, we used thi il 0U1 

bodies to put pressure on Obama 10 follow 
through on his shaky campaign promises 
vithough the action generated 

widespread coverage from the media and 
was unprecedented in uniting mainstream 

■. ,n, if Batia&Ua. 
environmental groups in support ol a civil

I 'tippas 

Alter twenty years, the 
game of rugby must feel 
like j relentless defender to

tdown. However, 
tone does not 
express this feeling 
when it eatehes up 

Although "C oath

fes Professoi 
game of rugby 
nds back to his 
ege days for the 
Jasper. Tennessee

ball throughout 
hool, mostly 
a pitcher, but 
lly decided I

that when I reached 
college," explains 

I he game has 
taken him across 
the country and, in some 
cases, around the globe 
Besides coaching stints in 
Know i lie. Chattanooga 
and MTSU. Dr. Carter 
has played rugby in New 
Zealand and in the UK. It 
was while he was playing 
for the American Rugby 
Team in the UK thai he- 
met his wife, a physical 
therapist for a rugby club 
across the pond. They 
arc the proud mother and 
father ol two children who 
' pl.n every sport you can 
iagine," exclaims Carter. 
Alter receiving his 
torate from the 
niversiiy of Tennessee

and I said. 'Well sure 

I leach a class' and

Carter's cards following 
unfortunate death of 
Coach Brian Springer - 
"Throughout my time here 
I'd go out and have a run 
at a few rugby practices 
and after Coach Stringer 
passed away a few of the 
guys asked me to fill in." 

Beyond his new 
position. Dr. C attei 
cannot say enough about 
the young men he s been 
asked to coach "One thing 
that I've noticed here in 
the tall season is that a lot 
of older guys are w tiling to 
sit out at the halt and take 
a loss i ust so that some 
other guys can get playing 
time, because that depth 
coming into the spring is 
so important " 

Nevertheless. the 

players' attitude toward 
Dr. Carter is nothing short 
ol deep appreciation. 
Senior rugbs player Peter 
Vu called Coach Carter "a 
man that I truly admire." 

Vu explained that Carter 
"volunteers to coach our 
team several days a week 
even when we bavi ol 
to pay him compensation

but somehow these 
guys found .i waj

game and sticking to 
their fundamentals," 
Carter explains, "and 

I've been following

team for twenty /ears 
and they weren t always 
spectacular, hut when 
Coach Stringer took charge 
of this team he made them 
into a proper rugby team 
taught them fundamentals, 
taught them skills, taughl 
them how to play rugby. 
We've got a bunch ol smart 
rugby players and * on h 

Stringer without a doubt 
built thai team. 1 simply 
inherited all of it." 

When asked what he 
found more satisfying 
teaching in the classroom 
or on the rugby Held I 'i 
Carter admitted ' I never 

really intended to coach (if 
teach but I find them both 
so equally satisfying 

but I do like the halt lime 
speeches, I musl 

Rugby, as (. oach Carter 
notes, is a unique sport: 
"Once you're a player, 
you're almost part ol B 
family " 

Having said that.

As a freshman. I am

ol community service, to

the University's attempt at 
guiding the choices made 
by my classmates and me 
over our nest tour years 
here. Unlike most of my 
classmaU • who spend their

While this was 
achieved to stent. 

there were several issues I 
had with the presentation 
Ihe lusl was lite .ippio.i, Ii 

the administration chose to

Opposite sex I his approach 
has il. value but oserall is 
less effective than perhaps a

I acknowledge thai

they need to drink and acl

icchUS, it's entering into 

alternate reality in which 

les of logic, norms, and

Fery disappear into night

People ask about the 
icchUS driving experience

The van starts sliding of the 
road, on a 45 degree hill Did

Luckily.thc tires recte 

a few feet before the van 
Comes oft the road and 1 did 
not go to the "salted" road 
down to Hodgson again thai

you ever tried yelling 

at drunk, freezing newl) 
Initiated college kids to 
fisl gently close the door, 
shutting it completely before 
opening it? Well it doesn't
